There are 298 cases of the 2012 Grenache La Paciencia Vineyard and it’s unquestionably the best vintage of this wine to date. Offering fabulous intensity in its strawberry, raspberry, spice, pepper and floral bouquet, this beauty hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, a supple, elegant texture and a seamless, lengthy finish. This wows with its purity and finesse-driven style more than for weight or richness, and it should evolve nicely given its overall balance. Drink 2016-2024 Winemaker Elizabeth Bourcier continues to fine-tune these No Girls releases and I think these 2012s are her greatest wines to date. These all come from the La Paciencia vineyard, and they've added a new Tempranillo release in 2012. The style here is similar to Cayuse (which is where the wines are made), yet these always show less overt power and more finesse. (JD)
Supple, satiny, polished and expressive, layering plum, cherry and sassafras flavors onto an open-textured frame, gliding easily into a long and multilayered finish. (HS)
Quite lightly colored, this wine displays perfumed aromas of green and black olive, stargazer lilies, mineral, peat and moist earth. The flavors are both ethereally light and rich, tingling the palate with seemingly endless savoriness. (SS)
Moderately saturated pale red. Old World nose offers scents of raspberry, cranberry, smoke, flint, peony, rose petal and pink peppercorn. A juicy, pure wine with lovely precision and finesse, with the red berry flavors complicated by saline minerality; the mouthfeel here is distinctly Burgundian. Finishes with slightly edgy tannins and acidity but still offers considerable early appeal for its sheer verve. A fascinating Washington Grenache. Elizabeth Bourcier, who is "assistant vigneronne" at Cayuse, has recently taken over responsibility for the No Girls wines. She noted that the crop level here was just 1.2 tons per acre; the Paciencia vineyard is situated just north of Armada, in the Rocks district. (ST)
